"A story of poverty and heartbreak, over which human faith has its will...filled with an earthy humor, the unpredictable flash of human malice and emotion"
reviewed The Emigrants on
I have always loved reading about the trials of the people who came to the United States before us. Those early settlers left places and families that would never be seen again by them on this side of heaven. It amazes me how the women especially survived those challenging times. This book did not disappoint me.
